Yes. I'm one of those people. I'd been looking for something different for a while now-- went around with Brink, Crysis, a bunch of others. That said, I think a lot of things stand in the way of TF's popularity-- lack of content aside (let's just all nod, yeah, that argument has been made). It's too random for esports fans and, I think to frenetic for some contemporary shooter fans. The guys I played Quake and the like with took to it like ducks to water... the guys who didn't drop in until console shooters not so much.

Eh, I'm one of the latter who started with the likes of Halo 3 and COD4 and I can really appreciate the pace and freedom of movement in this game, and this is coming from someone who generally hates verticality in FPS map design; it just works in this game because camping isn't really a thing. It does feel like it'll get old easily though, which is strange because I don't really mind the lack of content as the stuff that matters is all there, but other than that it's a blast. Maybe it's just that none of my friends have it for 360. :V
